Solid evidence has now emerged that the American public - and particularly the segment of the public that elected Donald Trump the nation's 45th president, have rejected the the barrage of fake news Russophobic propaganda being pumped out by the failing mainstream media. 

Barack Obama in his last major press conference, expressed exasperation that according to a new YouGov/Economist poll, 37% the GOP now views Putin favorably - an increase over previous polls.

"Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave," remarked Obama, apparently not cognizant of the fact that Reagan pursed diplomacy with the Soviet Union that ended the Cold War, rather than the violent confrontation his administration has favored. 

This poll proves that not only has the establishment-tied mainstream media begun to self-destruct through its stubborn adherence to absurd unproven hysteria about Russian hacking of Hillary's emails (hacking which, whoever is responsible, revealed the extent of Hillary's crimes), but it also has actually had the opposite of the intended effect. It has convinced an increasing number of people that Vladimir Putin is a good guy. 

Let the pouting continue as the Washington establishment continues to crash and burn.
